George Michael’s sister has died on the third anniversary of the late star's passing

Pop megastar George Michael's sister, Melanie Panayiotou, has died on the third anniversary of the late musician's passing.

Melanie was found dead at her home in London on Christmas Day, the same day the 'Faith' singer, passed away in 2016 at the age of 53 from heart and liver disease.

A statement from the Metropolitan Police read: "Police were called by London Ambulance Service at approximately 19:35hrs on Wednesday, 25 December to reports of the sudden death of a woman, aged in her 50s, at an address in Oak Hill Park, NW3.

"The death is not being treated as suspicious by police. A report will be compiled for the Coroner into the circumstances."

The cause of Melanie's death - who was 59 at the time of her passing - as not yet been confirmed.

The hairdresser was reportedly found by her older sister Yioda Panayiotou and will be buried next to the 'Careless Whisper' hitmaker and their mother.

Both George and his mother Lesley are buried beside one another at Highgate Cemetery, and it has now been revealed that Melanie will also be laid to rest alongside them.

The Wham! singer’s grave is currently unmarked, and whilst sources say Melanie will get her own headstone, they claim George's will remain unmarked in order to stop fans from gathering at the site.
